Nobody's ever been careful what they wish for. Lupe is no exception. Loneliness, obsession, and sanity-eating monsters collide in our cosmic horror conclusion. Love conquers all, though... right?

    To some degree, there's always that element of you know it would end like this in some form because of all that happened. There was no way to fix the world and the only other option was a kind of death-of-monsters path to follow. But a lot of the energy of what we had with the series up until now just dissipates quickly. There are tense moments because you can't be sure what the monster will do but the action and intensity from previous issues just isn't here. It's an interesting end but one that feels, well, a bit safe after all that we had happened over the run and all the weird places it went and uncertainty it had. It's solid and well done but I was hoping for something a bit less cerebral for it. Read Full Review

    I expected to like this book, It had great world building, looked fantastic, and had an interesting premise.

    Sadly a couple of things nixed it for me.

    The book is heavily filtered through the male gaze. Yes, some of that is incumbent within the plot, and yes, some of it does get addressed to a degree, but it never manages to pull away from that. It felt more like it was trying to have its cake and eat it too whilst becoming deeply mired in what it purportedly questions.

    The other disappointment was the ending, it just did not land for me, especially the cheesy dialogue. It felt so goofball and off-kilter it wasn’t even worth a groan. Like it retrospectively tarnished the good.
